QIPCO British Champions Day


QIPCO British Champions is the explosive finale to the British Flat racing season. It’s the day when champions are crowned as Ascot racecourse is set alight on the nation’s richest ever raceday.

The best horses and jockeys from across the globe will be in action to compete for a record-breaking amount of over £4.2 million in prize money as they bid to follow in the hoof prints of the likes of Frankel, who signed off his glittering, unbeaten career on this day in 2012.
